Issue

Too many corporations think about marketing to the 55 million strong Latino Market during Hispanic Heritage month or try on Cinco de Mayo.

However, these companies have put their money where their mouth is for Latino market. We'd like to call them our top "Three Amigos" aka The Three Caballeros 1944
AT&T “Between Two Worlds”
AT&T’s #BetweenTwoWorlds is the Hispanic movement in their expansive social media campaign #TheMobileMovement, which launched earlier this year. The company began the Hispanic operation in July 2014 as an opportunity to connect and engage bicultural Latinos, particularly digital-savvy millennials.
#BetweenTwoWorlds focuses on the lives of young acculturated Hispanics between their teens and mid-30s, who easily identify with both mainstream U.S. culture and their Latino background. Accompanying the #TheMobileMovement is a Tumblr page similarly featuring Spanglish posts. The two hashtags can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Dunkin Donuts “Dunkin' Latino”
As of June 2014, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its Latino Twitter page, looking to cater to the company’s Spanish speakers. Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts also claimed to be the first national coffee retailer to make its website, mobile, and Facebook platforms available in Spanish and English.
With the social media campaign launch, there was a brief sweepstakes. Fans could follow @DunkinLatino and use the hashtag #MiDunkinEsTuDunkin to enter a chance to win a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for themselves and a friend. The brand is now supporting their digital Hispanic movement with hashtags such as #MiDunkin and #DunkinLatino.

McDonald’s “Me Encanta”
Back in 2011, McDonald’s introduced its Spanish-language Twitter campaign. @MeEncanta is a Spanglish-based account used to interact with fans about promotional deals through music, sports and education.
McDonald’s Latino movement is currently engaging its online audience with its hashtag #MiMomento. The hashtag, however, has not seemed to catch on yet with many of the posts coming from unrelated tweets.

BILL THE WALL TO US?

Issue

Tweeting that the dishonest media does not report any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later, but not offering any proof or details on how he will accomplish it. Some may wonder who is really being dishonest?

It appears that it is much easier to make statements one day and then different the next day. The Donald has said that he knows more than others and points fingers but it is more difficult to explain in detail the specifics than to make general comments like -Lock Her Up, Repeal and Replace Mexico Will Pay for The Wall and so many others, but never following up with specific facts, or data.

Forgotten Revolution?

Issue

The Peoples Republic of China keeps trying to forget its Cultural Revolution. Today marks the 50th anniversary of the day Mao Zedong issued the order that began China's Cultural Revolution.

This was a ten-year period of violence and chaos when more than 1 million who were perceived to be counterrevolutionaries were imprisoned, killed or committed suicide and the economy was left in a shambles.

President Obama Returns

Issue

He's back, Barack Hussein Obama II. The former President chose the University of Chicago in his first public appearance since leaving The White House. As expected, he handled himself like a pro.

President Obama said warned that political gerrymandering is preventing the country from tackling problems like economic inequality, a broken criminal justice system and climate change.

US RACE AND IMMIGRATION REFORMS

Issue

According to MSNBC/Telemundo/Marist Poll of the United States findings, immigration reform and race relations continue to be hot-button issues in the headlines and for the 2016 presidential campaign. When it comes to U.S. immigration policy, many Americans, including more than eight in ten Latinos, think that birthright should remain in place so that children born in this country receive U.S. citizenship, regardless of whether or not their parents are undocumented immigrants. Americans divide about whether or not the term “anchor baby” is offensive.

Pardon vs Prosecute
